The delegation of UTS Group of Companies took part in the congress of the European Association of Distributors of Chemical Products Fecc-2019. The Fecc Annual Congress is the central forum for the leading distributors of the European continent and the main platform for discussing the pressing problems of the distribution of chemical materials in Europe.
The Fecc-2019 Congress was held in Sitges, Spain on June 12-14. The event’s speakers were the heads of Lanxess, Covestro, DOW, Elementis, Clariant, WR Grace & Co, Wacker Chemie AG, as well as representatives of Synthomer, Univar Solutions, IMCD and others. Together with delegates from major chemical distributors, representatives of ETC Group took part in the discussion of such topics such as: “Digitalization and cybersecurity”, “The value chain and services of the future”, “Promotion and attraction of young talents to chemical distribution”, “Sustainable development and safe circulation of chemicals”.
Like a year ago, the congress presented the rating of the top 100 largest distributors of chemical products, compiled by the analytical agency ICIS based on sales data for 2018. This is the most popular and most comprehensive list of distributors in the world. The ranking was attended by over 250 distributors of chemical products from around the world. At the end of 2018, UTS Group retained 37th place in Europe. In the world ranking, we slightly lost in comparison with the previous year - 77th place (75th place in 2017), but we will do our best to regain our positions at the end of 2019 and rise higher.
UTS Group is an associate member of the European Association of Chemical Distributors.
